Hi I'm Julie

I am a stay at home mom. I'm a "do it yourselfer". I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a college drop out with three semesters left, major Biology. My husband and I chose, after prayerful consideration, for me to drop out so that we could stay out of debt while we also began our journey as parents. We had our baby girl that year just in time to meet tax deductions. When she was born I was able quit my job and begin my lifelong career of being a mother. I love to create in my free time. Including creating a beautiful clean organized home. Wood creations are my favorite and I aspire to be a master carpenter one day. Whenever I see something I like, my immediate reaction is how could I create this.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church to incredible parents who taught me good and correct principles. I have a great desire to do what is right and be the best I can be. I have always know the gospel to be true. However, there have been times in my life where I question whether or not I truly know that, or as many people like to try to convince me, that I have been brainwashed. At these times I turn to the scripture, I read them, I pray, and then I remember. I remember the feeling I have felt when true testimony has been born to me. I remember the many blessings I have received from keeping the commandments. I remember the pain I have been spared by making the good choices that the gospel encourages us to make. And then I feel the spirit bear testimony to me of the truthfulness of the gospel. I'm a Mormon because the teachings of the Gospel lead me through good paths, and the teachings bring me peace and comfort in my life.

How I live my faith

I am a member of the Presidency that is over the women's organization in my ward. I assist our president in her efforts to help the women of our area grow in physical, emotional, and spiritual strength. We prayerfully consider what lessons should be ought on Sunday, activities, and assignments for the visiting teaching program. I also have my own visiting teaching assignment. I have a companion and assigned sisters to visit throughout the month. My calling as a visiting teacher is my favorite. I get to personally develop a friendship with women of all walks of life with all kinds of different backgrounds. My responsibility is to help them grow and to be there for them when they need assistance. I am their meal when they are in a pickle, I am their ride when their car broke down, I am their shoulder to cry on, I am their friend.

How do I become a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church)?

Easy, find a member. You might recognize one by the way they dress, act, artwork in their home, Sunday activities, etc. Notice the life they lead and ask them to know more about why they do what they do. Tell them you want to become a member and they will be more than happy to help you find the peace that comes from learning about our Savior and living His gospel. Show more Show less
